Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Compensation Module
  2. Executive Review (Team Member Summary View tab)
  3. Select template and check managers Team View filter
  4. Edit any employee’s merit increase to 1000% to see it will split to lump sum
  5. Proxy as manager, then repeat steps above (via inbox or exec review) for the same employee/s
  6. Notice it did not split to lump sum


  • The user does not have read and write access to the LumpSum% (Standard) field, thus the Merit to Lumpsum split would not work on that manager.
  • For the salary rule to trigger, at minimum the read permission should be given to Lumpsum.


Enable read-write permissions for the manager via Role Based Permissions (RBP).
